Own Division: 5 teams x 5 games = 25 (home/away/home/away/home or vice versa, etc.)
1 team x 4 games = 4 (home/away/home/away) = 4, or 29 games in total.

Combined total is 82 games.
No it doesn't. let's look at the Central. St. Louis, Chicago, Minnesota, Dallas, Winnipeg, Colorado, Nashville.

Let's say St. Louis and Chicago only play 4 times. Fine.
Minnesota and Dallas only play 4 times. Fine.
Winnipeg and Colorado only play 4 times, Fine.
Well, that means all 6 of those teams are playing Nashville 5 times, so Nashville is playing 30 games in the division.
